DRC slow to connect to WACS
The Democratic Republic of Congo is reported to be behind schedule in its connection to the new West African Cable System (WACS).
DRC, initially expected to be connected when the cable went live this month, may now only be connected by August. Thirteen countries are connected to the new high speed internet cable.
Problems with the development of the landing station and within the national fixed line operator, SCPT, have been cited as some of the reasons for the delays in DRC.
